Sarah's Mother's Outcome

Facing the fact

Don't expect enlightenment

A second chance

Managing pain was the key

She died at home

Her last day

I like talking about her

What I learned

Facing the fact

I don't think I ever understood what it was like and how irrational you can become as a family member until you are in that situation. What it came down to is we did not want to face the fact that she had cancer and it might not get better and that she might die. In my mind, if she was staying at the same on her medication or going down that meant she was getting better. It was really hard to not think like that.
